NEWS RELEASE – Dateline: Marshfield Hills, MA, July 7, 2015
NEBAS founder, Captain Brad White reports that the country of Japan has a new and genuine interest in New England and it is not relating to Blue Fin Tuna but in the sea burial category.
Kenji McCulley, Associate Producer General Bureau for America of NHK, Japan’s national television network, a.k.a Japan Broadcasting Corp. stated, “This burial at sea topic is of great interest to our audience as Japan is facing an increasing scarcity of land for cemeteries and people are looking for new ways to bury their loved ones.”
White said, “The NHK documentary team from NY and Tokyo showed an interest in our business model and was invited to attend a private family burial at sea event on June 29, 2015 organized by www.NewEnglandBurialsAtSea.com in Newburyport, MA to record an actual New England family performing a dual scattering of human cremated remains three miles to sea for their Dad and Sister east of Plum Island, Massachusetts, USA –a place that they loved to summer at and their final wish was to be scattered there. The family contacted NEBAS and easily arranged the catered scattering attended by family and friends,” said White.
Kenji also added, “I read about New England Burials At Sea and was hoping to include it in our report. As Japan is an island country, I believe our audience would be interested in hearing about this method. I was hoping to learn more about the origins of the company, how the idea came about, and how the company hopes to grow in coming years as more urbanization in the US squeezes out cemetery grounds.”
Capt. Brad White said, “I was pleased to meet the NY team in Boston, MA and invite them aboard to see first hand the quality and caring that goes into each and every event. Especially since NHK is Japan’s national television network and is carried in over 30 million households across the country. The English language network, NHK World, is carried in over 150 countries and the segments will air staring the first two weeks of July 2015.
White added, “Our short term goal is to easily and quickly service U.S. based Japanese families on the east or west coast from our over 84 vessels departing from 46 ports – typically within an hour’s drive of their home. Our long term goal is to establish an Asian beachhead somewhere to best service our Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, and South Korean client families.
To prepare for the expected increased web traffic, NEBAS has added a new Japanese specific web page informational section to its’ robust site that can be easily accessed by visiting www.japaneseburialsatsea.com
